What defines the Edge?

It’s where big ideas are born. Where action happens.

See why Aruba is positioned as a Leader in the latest Gartner reports.

There is a massive amount of data at the Edge

Harnessing that data can drive new business outcomes and experiences. But it also creates challenges for IT.


There’s already too much data for manual systems to handle and identifying and diagnosing connectivity issues takes up to 70% of IT’s time.


The organization demands speed, but securing and monitoring users, devices, and things is time-consuming.


Fixing cross-domain issues takes too long when your teams use multiple, siloed network management tools.


Resources and budgets are shrinking, especially in these challenging times, but business expectations are growing.

The new normal is a hybrid workplace

Employees, staff, and students can move seamlessly from home to office or campus

Wherever people are, the network will be the foundation for secure, remote connectivity and workplace capabilities like contact tracing.

Social distancing

Reassure staff and students that they’ll be safe as they return

Built-in network intelligence delivers density mapping so you can modify floorplans or contact tracing to minimize COVID’s impact – to keep everyone safe.

The office experience in the comfort and safety of home

The pandemic has caused challenges, but having secure connectivity from home shouldn’t be one of them. Now there’s an easy-to-deploy, IT-managed alternative to consumer network equipment.
